This is a video that recently came out of Mexico. A high ranking member of the Sinaloa Cartel was killed and this was his funeral procession. Many of our readers will be interested in it since it shows open and obvious automatic weapons fire by criminal gangs. When citizens are disarmed, only criminals will have guns.
But wait, there’s more…
I have worked in Mexico since the early 1990’s. I have dealt with some major dirt-bags. Inversely, I have dealt with “high-Mexicans” and all the racism, stratification and bigotry that resides between these two groups. I know the top. And I know the bottom.
Let me be very clear. Mexico is a narco-state. It’s just not a “failed” narco-state. What’s the difference you ask? In the international financial sectors, certain countries get “flagged” when money moves in and out off them. It’s not a hard concept to understand. Some guy in Iran or Afghanistan wants to drop 100 million on a used 747, people and places are going to start asking questions: Who, what, when, where, why, how?
Think Columbia. Think Yemen. Think Sudan. Think Syria. The issue isn’t having the money. The issue is where is the money coming from?
The Narco groups learned some valuable lesson from the failures of the Columbian drug lords, the Golden Triangle, and Afghanistan. Don’t flush the entire country. Buy it off. Maintain the political order. Use your money to leverage the national government to achieve your goals. Don’t fight the cops. Buy the cops. Don’t fight the man, buy the man.
A Mexican individual or company wants to buy the same 747 mentioned above? Cash? No problem, Senior. Will that be bearer bonds or a wire transfer? Maybe something that needs a End User Certificate (EUC) or restricted under ITAR? Close the container and ship it to one of two cartel controlled ports I personally know are used for such things.
No. Drug lords are not getting M2 Browning Machine guns and RPG’s from the United States. Any politician who advances such an argument is either retarded or willfully ignorant.
Mexico is at war with itself. And the hard truth is, the good guys are losing. Badly. And all the profits and illegal drug money supporting this disaster is the US drug user and a wide open southern border. You read that right. All the death and mayhem south of border is mostly our fault. Because we won’t turn off the money Spicket.
Look again at this video. A large mob of Sinaloa cartel members and their supporters marched down the street with automatic weapons just blazing away. With zero chance of repercussions.
But what the hell do I know? I just have 25 years of experience in Mexico. Keep on telling yourself all that tourist area construction is being financed by a Senior Frogs business model.
